Our new generation of gamers

Marc Sanchez Oct 11, 2011

NPD Group has released a new report that finds 91 percent of kids ages 2 to 17 play video games. That’s 64 million people. And some of them are TWO YEARS OLD. And those toddlers can actually totally crush you in Madden. From CNET: “the strongest gains have come from kids between the ages of 2 and 5, which have increased their “gaming incidence” 17 percentage points since 2009.”
